    As President and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Kelly Brough leads the Chamber’s efforts to serve the Colorado business community.  Kelly has a passion for her job and for Colorado.  We welcome Kelly to discuss Legislative, Economic and Social issues that affect Colorado’s reputation, its economic vitality and quality of life.

    Kelly was the first female director of human resources for the City of Denver.  She successfully moved the human resource department from an authoritarian culture to one based on service delivery and focused on outcomes.  During her two years in this role, Kelly led significant reforms including moving the City to a full pay for performance system and establishing the City’s first bonus plan program.

    Kelly also directed an internationally recognized leadership program at the University of Colorado at Denver—the Rocky Mountain Program.  She served as a consultant to many local governments facilitating decisions, managing large public processes and comprehensive planning efforts, mediating disputes, and providing strategies to build stronger public/private partnerships.

    Kelly earned a Master’s of Business Administration degree from the University of Colorado at Denver in 1989 and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Sociology, Criminal Justice from Montana State University in 1986.  Kelly currently serves on the Board of Directors of Denver Metro Chamber Leadership Foundation, Denver Zoo and Visit Denver; the Graduate School Bioscience Advisory Board for University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus; and the Corporate Board of Delta Dental. She is also a member of the Women’s Forum and The Chamber 100 with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

    Brough was recently named as one of Colorado’s 10 most influential women by The Denver Post, and one of Denver’s most influential people by 5280 Magazine. In 2012, Brough received the University of Colorado Denver Campus Alumni Recognition Award. She has attended a number of leadership programs including the JFK School of Government’s program at Harvard for state and local public officials. She was also named an American Marshall Memorial Fellow in 2001.

    While City Club's history in Denver stretches back over 90 years, the National Western Complex is 109 years old and still driving commerce to Denver.  The City of Denver has plans to rebuild the area and released the Master Plan in December.  Shortly after the Master Plan was announced, the 2015 stock show had its second highest overall attendance in stock show history with 682,539 visitors.  With partners like the internationally recognized CSU Veterinary program and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and with plans to change the I-70 overpass, what is the Master Plan and how will it affect the future of the stock show in Denver?
